What was your reaction after hearing you were one of the nominees?
I wasn’t in the room when the announcements came on but I was really excited. I was also shocked because I didn’t think I would ever make it.
Did you want to be homecoming queen and how did you get people to vote for you?
Yes I did. I thought it was would be really fun to do it with all my friends, so my friends and I went around telling people about us.
What do you think of this year’s theme for homecoming?
I think it’s a lot different from what we’ve ever had. But I like it, like how it incorporates the community into it.
How do you plan on involving the student body with the homecoming activities?
When I work the booth for the card making for the veterans, I will try to be very enthusiastic I’ll try to tell all my friends who are super involved and ask them to help me spread the word. Since I’m a senior mentor, maybe that would help out getting the sophomores more involved.
What school activities do you participate in?
I am in Tri Theta, Art Honors Society, F.O.O.D. Club, Folio, NHS and French Honors Society, and an artist for the newspaper.
Which homecoming activity do you look forward to the most?
I’m really looking forward to going over to Rock Bridge Elementary; I think it would be a lot of fun, and I’m not sure what I dread the most. It’s not really an activity, but I’m afraid that during the assembly, I’ll fall on my way up to the front, but hopefully that doesn’t happen.
